Tips To Help You Make Better Fish Tacos

by Gilbert Lopez

Fish tacos can be incredible. They're light and fresh, but still bursting with flavors everyone wants in a taco. So, if you run a restaurant near a beach or in another area where people want fresh options, putting fish tacos on the menu is a wise move. Here are some ways to make sure your fish tacos are the best in town.

Serve them on corn tortillas.

Other types of tacos can be delicious in flour tortillas, but flour tortillas are a little too chewy and dense for a fish taco. A corn tortilla has a lighter texture and flavor, making it a better pairing for tender fish. You may want to sample a few different brands of corn tortillas before choosing one to use for your fish tacos. Some brands are thicker and denser than others. For a fish taco, you really want a thin, less chewy corn tortilla.

Use light, flaky fish.

Technically, you can put any kind of fish in a fish taco. But the best fish for this use tend to be those with light, flaky flesh. They break apart easily as the customer bites into the taco, and the light fish leaves plenty of room for the other flavors to shine. Halibut, cod, and snapper all work well. If you have room to spare in your budget, you may want to use mahi-mahi.

Make your white sauce in-house.

It is traditional to serve fish tacos with a zesty, citrusy white sauce on top. You can order this sauce, but it's pretty easy to make in-house. Making your own in-house will ensure it has just the right balance of flavors, since you can adjust your ingredient proportions as needed. A good, basic white sauce recipe is as follows:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Whisk everything together, and let the sauce rest for at least a half-hour to allow the flavors to meld. You can adjust the amounts of seasonings and lime juice to suit your preferences, of course. If you serve a lot of fish tacos, you may want to make a double or triple batch each day.

Serving fish tacos is a great way to put your restaurant on the map. Follow the tips above for best results, and remember to make adjustments as you go.
